Two bees hatch from their pupae. Their tasks are to clean, maintain, build and defend their bee house. With comedic scenes and Dadaistic sound poems and a pompous, self-absorbed and singing queen bee, the beehive will be the backdrop for some very strange incidents.
Nature, both as reality and metaphor, is a key element
in «BZz BZz – DADA da bee», as a direct metaphor for birth, growth, interaction, and development. Surreal moments are created through visual auditive and choreographic means.
– All the world’s a stage (William Shakespeare)
